    Default how clever is that!

    Today it was warm this morning so i left my car windows open, all 4 of them down about 2 inch.

    Only to realise it was raining.

    Expecting to find everything soaked, i find a few rain spots inside...

    And my windows closed.

    Did my car shut them for me using rain sensor, I must say it has impressed me.

    Yep, if you have the rain sensor and you've double-locked (deadlocked) the car then the windows will close if rain is detected.

    Easy way to check is to leave them open, and pour a bit of it onto the sensor. It works with de-icing fluid as well, as I found out to my cost once when the wipers started to operate...

    Edit: you could sell this info on ebay I reckon....
